So... all going TO PLAN, Mike will be getting shorn like a sheep this morning.
I hope he goes through with it.

Either way, I won't be able to show you until I get home.

There is only so much I can do on my little Samsung phone!

I have been thrilled to bits with how much I have been able to do in relation to blogging using my phone. It is getting easier that's for sure.

Last night after dinner Mike, Joyce and I had a wander around The Plaza. There's an Acquisition store there.  Mike spied an item that was an awesome price... half price in fact... so

ABOVE:  Something else I will show you once I get home! *smiles*

This trip wasn't supposed to be a freakin' shoppi g expedition....I'm pretty bloody broke after the dental bills!

But... Seems I can find bargins and the odd little thing anyway 😒.

So, after Mike's haircut I will be heading home. Again, I shall be taking my time and just enjoying the trip.


Sandra and I just took the new car she wants for a test drive. Give her a couple of months and she will have it!

Waiting for Mike n Joyce now... IT'S GUNNA HAPPEN !!!

3.41 pm...just a very quick update.
The hair got the chop.
I will post photos etc tonight.

I'm about half way home. Traffic is quite busy. Masses of roadworks too.

ABOVE: Sandra taking her dream car for a test drive. More about that later too.

ABOVE: Lake Taupo... my view right now.

And now I shall carry on...

 ABOVE:  Right, let's get this out of the way... 

She has to wait until May for it to arrive.  Poor girl... she wants it NOW.  She's like me, hates to wait.

And now... We have MIKE'S HAIRCUT.

ABOVE:  WE went to the right place!  He needed to be shorn like a sheep! lol

 ABOVE:  He cut his beard off before he arrived at the salon... already a HUGE difference!

Then we have the 'FIRST CUT' video:

ABOVE:  So happy he went through with it!  He had procrastinated about getting it cut for about 6 months... my arrival provided the impetus to go get it done!

ABOVE:  The Hairdresser hadn't had to tackle such a job before!  

ABOVE:  Joyce's face... she was SO HAPPY he was getting it all off.  So was I.

My trip home was uneventful.  I literally drove non stop, just 5 quick stops for piddle/food/petrol.

There was too much traffic for me to want to stop and dither around... I had passed many bloody slow trucks etc, and the last thing I wanted was to let them pass me if I stopped.

As it was it took me about 5 and a half hours to get here.

ABOVE:  I haven't had a chance to unwrap/show me purchases, that will have to wait till tomorrow.

I'm done for the day! Rather tired, it's a decent trip from Palmy in heavy traffic.
Catch ya tomorrow.
